Overview of Information Security for New and Non-IT Project Managers

white paper
by Rubaiyyaat Aakbar

Information security is all about protection of information and its critical elements (confidentiality, integrity and availability), including the systems and process that use, store and transmit that information. When it comes to information security, what exactly does it mean to us as project managers? This author helps you put the right procedures in place.

Team Member to Team Lead: What's the Difference?

by Andy Jordan

Being asked to lead your first project can be exciting—and overwhelming. But in practical terms, moving from being part of a project team to leading that team isn’t the major shift that project managers often treat it as.

Effective Team Member Relationships

by Andy Jordan

Project managers only succeed when their teams succeed, but what does that mean for how the PM manages relationships with individual team members? Read about the biggest mistake that new project managers make.

Covering Things up Is Never the Right Approach

by Andy Jordan

Project managers sometimes feel they have to hide problems or challenges. That is never the right approach. When project managers try to mask or hide issues, they expose the project to a number of additional risks.

What Is a Quality Project Manager?

by Bruce Garrod

Although it’s true that not every attribute can be quantitatively measured, leveraging PMI’s three processes makes sense when defining a quality project manager.

A Quality Primer

by Andy Jordan

One area where new project managers seem to struggle is quality management. Let’s go back to basics and look at the foundations of quality (which will also be a useful refresher for everyone!).

The Importance of ‘Why’

by Andy Jordan

PMs should be consciously thinking about whether they need to adjust the approach for the unique situation they are facing. New PMs don’t have the experience to know when they need to make those adjustments; to figure that out they need to continuously be asking “Why?”

How to Understand Your Team

by Andy Jordan

New project managers won’t have as much familiarity with their team members. How do they overcome that and set themselves up for success?

Why 'Percent Complete' Is Never a Measure of Progress

by Andy Jordan

Project managers live and die by the performance of projects against their schedule, yet many of them don’t know how to measure that performance. To truly understand what’s going on with their projects, it’s important for new PMs to avoid falling into the “percent complete” trap in the first place.

Dealing With a Runaway Team

by Andy Jordan

When the team seems to be working on a different plan than the project manager, what’s going on? And what needs to be done about it? A challenge for new project managers is figuring out the reasons and correcting things.

Topic Teasers Vol. 118: What Can I Do Quickly?

by Barbee Davis, MA, PHR, PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-PBA

Question: I seem like I am constantly facing problems that have no easy or ideal solutions. Since I work in an environment with only myself as a project manager, I have no colleagues I can ask for advice. How can I stop second-guessing myself regarding whether or not I am making good decisions for how to move forward in bad situations?

What is Project Management, Really?

by Andy Jordan

PM training is focused on the mechanics of the skills you need, not an overview of project management and the role of the PM. That’s a problem. Does anyone actually tell new project managers what their job is?

The Most Important Phrase New PMs Need to Embrace

by Andy Jordan

New PMs have a very steep learning curve, and there’s no way around that. But learning to use one particular phrase can help make that learning a little easier...
